Commands for monitoring IBM TSM Server in HP-UX Operating System - Video Tutorial

Important and Useful commands which are used for monitoring and managing IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) on HP-UX machines are shown below in this post. You can also see the video tutorial on how to check the HP-UX system information for a IBM TSM. Remember that unlike monitoring IBM TSM in AIX, most of the commands are different and also the installation and device configuration methods are also bit different in HP-UX system. I recommend to check the requirements for TSM in HPUX before installing and configuring. 

Useful Commands for managing IBM TSM Server  in HP-UX

1) To Check the Filesystems and their size & information in HP-UX use ---- bdf command
Filesystems in HP-UX

2) Tivoli Storage Manager default paths for Server and clients
      TSM Server - /opt/tivoli/tsm/server/bin
      BAClient - /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin
      API Client /opt/tivoli/tsm/api/bin64

3) To check the installed software packages in HPUX use swlist command. To check only if TSM is installed or not use ----- swlist |grep -i tivoli

4) To check the process of TSM server, run the following command ------ ps -ef | grep -i dsm

5) To check the available tape devices in HPUX, run the following command ---- ioscan -fnC tape. This command will scan the attached tape devices and list them out as shown below.

ioscan -fnC tape

6) The above image shows the available tape drives list in Operating System level, to configure those tape drives in TSM you must go to /opt/tivoli/tsm/devices/bin and run the ./autoconf command to configure the devices to be used in IBM TSM. You can also use ./tsmdlst command to list the tape drives WWN number and Serial numbers as shown below



You should use the TSM device names shown in the above screen for example (/dev/rmt/tsmmt4) while defining path for the tape drives to TSM Server.
